We took a winters Sunday afternoon drive from Melbourne and ended up in Kyneton. We were pleasantly surprised by this town, plenty of eateries and shops to stroll through. We chose the Royal George Hotel as our lunch venue arriving at 12.45pm, no tables available until 1.30pm so it gave us a chance for a stroll. On returning, we sampled... More

Excellent quality food, with a great menu full of selections. Huge range of craft beers on tap. Try the Igor by Red Duck, yum! And a cozy and relaxed atmosphere = win.

The new owners came in as of three weeks ago. There are now sixteen taps of craft beer (plus a hand pump!) and the food is tasty and wonderfully matched. Lucinda and Chris (and the team) are doing a wonderful job. We loved the zucchini flowers and the steak was to die for. Prices are reasonable for such gourmet fare.... More

Thanks to Jim & his team in the kitchen for what was a wonderful afternoon of sublime food & wine. Having eaten at the Royal George previously some 2 years ago (wonderful then too) I decided it was time to reacquaint myself. A quick look at their website & I'd noticed they had changed things up a little bit &... More

A relaxing Sunday lunch at this great venue. My husband enjoyed a beer and for me a local champagne. First course was zucchini flowers, absolutely delicious, followed by the most amazing double roasted lamb for two . Superbly cooked, it just melted in your mouth, served with new potatoes and a salad of tomato and cucumber it truly was an... More

We were happy to get a late booking for Valentine's Day- a 5 course set menu (3 choices offered for main) for $79. A great idea really as tables of 2 must be very difficult to deal with I imagine. We elected to have wine matched with the food- 5 half glasses, 1 per course, for an additional $40- a... More

Food and service very good but a bit too expensive and not much to choose from for a lunchtime meal.

Awwww yeah! I have been to the Wedgewood Room at the George twice in the past couple of months. First for my own birthday, then after being blown away by the place, food and service, we make another booking for a few weeks later. Sure, it is pricey but the quality of food that you are paying for, the price... More

The service and atmosphere are faultless. Stunning old hotel on historic Piper St. Cosy bar and dining rooms, delightful food, generous servings.

We had a beautiful dinner recently, with perfectly matched wines. The service was friendly and professional, the lamb shoulder was so tasty. Thanks for a great night out.
